Lorraine No, I don't think it's one of the better ones. And, why not start with the first in the series?
Orinoco Womble (tidy bag and all) Not in my opinion. She is said to consider this her best work but I disagree. I think it's slow, dull and annoying. It doesn't know if it's a bad imitation of a Noel Coward society comedy, or a spy novel.
